Introverts vs. Extroverts

I came up with this article today: “Introverts vs. Extroverts: How to Identify and Develop Diverging Personality Types”.

“Susan Krauss Whitbourne, a professor of psychology at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, recently made the case for introverts in an article in Psychology Today. To her, introverts make for better leaders for a simple reason: “They’re more likely to listen and pay attention to what other people are saying.”

This article also mentions a book:” Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking”. I haven’t read this book yet but it must be an interesting one.

Distinctive Characteristics of U.S. Higher Education

Based on the following article, there are some items that distinguish U.S higher education. I believe the most important one is diversity, other than that they mention accessibility, size, competition and autonomy as a distinguishing feature of U.S. higher education in this article. It is a comprehensive article that covers the number of graduate students, and academic faculty in the U.S and also the current challenges in higher education.
